Cactus Jack Filter Stone / Heat Baffle System
The Patent Baffle System, Even Temperature In Your Offset Smoker Cook Chamber
This stone has a few functions, to filter soot, ash, and levelling the temperature across the cooking grate to within 10 degrees.
This filter stone was designed for the 16'' models, models of this size always prefer a ''top down'' heat approach when trying to level the temperatures in the cooking chamber.
This stone can be mounted in the cooking chamber with the holder provided, you can set the holder right the way upto the firebox opening, or our preferred way is a few inches away from the opening in the cook chamber, this helps the smoker draw the heat from the fire, up into the lid of the smoker and across the food, in a ''top-down'' fashion.
We find this works excellent and much better than complicated plates and sheet steel diverter plates.
You can also use this stone in the groove provided (groove not present in older units), this mounts it extremely close to the firebox, and will enable you to build a large fire and run it with all fire doors open in ''Fire pit''/''ambient'' mode, enjoy the heat from an open fire, keeping your cooking chamber temperatures low and so (as pictured).
